There's a market here for putting these things on...a small business op
Now that looks sweet, love the collar and grain of the leather.
I think personally that the ELC perhaps has too much taper around the wrists and the BK not quite enough, although i've seen period photos of both baggy and tight wrists.Both jackets look great, your ELC RW looks very similar to mine, as for the BK sleeves not tapering enough seems to be a pattern issue as it seems to be on all their ww2 jackets. I have a BK G&F M422a and the sleeves are the same with not much taper at the cuff end.
Here ya go Clark...About knits I have owned a half dozen Eastman A-2s still have 2 and have always thought their knits are the weakest part of their jackets. I remember back when JC was ramping up he was have a heck of a time finding knits. I purchased one of his first run goat Dubows that had kind of a ribbed set of knits they looked just fine and wore great but I think he changed shortly after that.Some one here from the UK ended up with it maybe if they didn't sell it they could post a pic of the knits.
